Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes

Endocrinology focuses on the body glands and how the hormones they produce help body systems work together and allow people to function. When things are not working well, children and adolescents may have problems with metabolism, growth and development, puberty and more.

If your child has diabetes or another hormone-related condition, our pediatric endocrinology team is ready to help. Our doctors are specially trained in hormone disorders and understand the unique impact these disorders have on kids. 

Our team has experience with all types of hormone disorders, including those of the adrenal, pituitary and thyroid glands. We understand how these disorders affect your child’s physical health and emotional well-being and work with you and your child’s primary care doctor to minimize their impacts. Our goal is to help kids function at their best. 

Diabetes is a medical condition in which the body produces too little, or no, insulin – a hormone that regulates glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream and gives us the energy to function.

If your child has diabetes, they – and you – can benefit from the help of a pediatric endocrinologist. We offer:

  • Disease management
  • Education
  • Intensive, ongoing insulin management
  • Instruction in safe and effective insulin pump operation and care
